Prayer

United Methodist Women Prayer Chain
IMG_1132When Fountain Park UMC was built, above the Erie Avenue entrance, “The House of Prayer” was engraved.  We are called to be praying people.

The volunteer Prayer Committee for the United Methodist Women’s group is dedicated to continually encourage our church members to pray for the sick and to intercede on behalf of someone else who needs God’s help.

Therefore let us pray in solitude for our church family as we pray for ourselves.

Special Prayer Request – America:  America struggles with moral breakdown, family disintegration, organizations denying Christians their rights afforded them by the Bill of Rights.  What should Christians do during these dark times in America?  Pray!!!  Pray for President Trump and his administration that they will call upon God for guidance and strength.  Pray for those that are intolerant of Christian Biblical truth to open their hearts to God’s love.  Pray for those killing the innocent defenseless unborn.  Pray for those filled with hate and rioting to accept the peace and compassion of our Lord, Jesus Christ. Pray for those that oppose the United States and look for ways to undermine our constitution.  Now is not the time to be complacent, but to take action and keep our eyes on our Savior and ask for God’s strength. 

US Israel FlagsSpecial Prayer Request – Israel
“When you open your hand, you satisfy the hunger and thirst of every living thing.” – Psalm 145:16   Please take a moment to pray for impoverished and struggling families in Israel. Pray for the resources they need to make ends meet during difficult times.  Also pray for safety from the threats Israel faces from unfriendly governments & terrorists that either undermine their security or have intentions to bring harm to their country.  We give thanks to God that relations between Israel and America have grown stronger.

Warren visitingThe Unrivaled Power of Prayer
We do not know what we should pray for as we ought, but the Spirit Himself makes intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.  Romans 8:26
We realize that we are energized by the Holy Spirit for prayer; and we know what it is to pray in accordance with the Spirit.

 


The Undetected Sacredness of
Circumstances
We know that all things work together for good to those who love God.  Romans 8:28
The circumstances of a saint’s life are ordained of God.  In the life of a saint there is no such thing as chance.

Intimate Theology
Do you believe this?  John 11:26
Martha believed in the power available to Jesus Christ; she believed that if He had been there He could have healed her brother.
